Metromont Project Details

Project Overview

Located on a former industrial site in Savannah’s Jackson Park neighborhood, Montgomery Hall is home to approximately 500 SCAD students and features study rooms, group lounge spaces and studios as well as a dining hall.

Montgomery Hall, better known as “Monty” to students and staff, is a total precast facility with a modern design, reflective of SCAD’s global reputation for cutting-edge facilities and creative culture.

The original design called for a steel frame with a brick and block exterior. It wasn’t until the durability of the building became a focal point of discussion that the design team began to consider the benefits of a total precast structure. Metromont delivered a one-stop solution for the total structure of the building including insulated, exterior wall panels with a variety of architectural colors and finishes. A total precast solution enabled the design team to meet time and budget requirements while also delivering a modern, state of the art facility.

"The precast concrete design was able to meet the stringent performance requirements of the structure while providing an aesthetically pleasing, sustainable final product at an affordable price point."

"Metromont’s team embraced our idea and got their whole team on board. It’s one thing for sales managers to want to make architects happy, but to have the plant manager, the finishing crew foreman and engineers fully engaged is something else. Metromont was extremely cooperative – the project was a win-win for everyone.”
